Kym is an amazing person!! She is wonderful to work with and did an amazing job educating us on how to train our dog, a 6 month old German Shepherd. She loves what she does and it is very apparent in her work. I highly recommend her!
She is great with my German Shepherd puppy. Harley is so attentive to her! If i have any questions between classes I can call or text her and she answers quickly! Gives great advice and ideas. Very supportive! HIGHLY recommend!
Daniel really knows his stuff. We now have 2 happy and friendly German shepherds. All the advice we received on introducing a new dog to our family worked. After 3 hrs of training session and about 7 days of follow the steps/advise….from walking w/muzzles, walking 20 feet apart, and finally walking side by side with no aggression, Max (new dog) and Foxy accepted each other. We are very happy with the success we had and we highly recom’d Daniel to work with your dogs.
Mark was fantastic, he definitely helped my boyfriend and I understand our german shepard/husky mix a bit better and gave us lots of tips on how to fix our concerns with her, which was barking and even growling/lunging at people. We will definitely be going back in a few months for a follow up and will go to him for all our future dog training needs. He kept things easy to understand and you can really tell he is passionate about what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dog trainer
Christina and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you and your associates did with our 1 year old German Shepherd Dog "Jack". When we brought him to you , he had a strong, independent spirit and we had difficulty getting him to know what we expected of him. We choose to board him with you rather than commit to several weekly lessons. We were pleased with our decision. You delivered a well- behaved, disciplined dog, who's spirt had not been broken yet with a heart for obedience. Your "Fun, Fair, and Firm" system was easy to learn. Jack is now a joy to have in our home, as protector and companion. If anyone should wish for names and /or numbers for a reference , please do not hesitate to give them our name and number.
Cat helped us with our dog Diesel. He is a German Shepherd that had behavior problems and aggression towards dogs and people. She is a top notch dog trainer. She took the time to learn about Diesel and what his needs were and then worked and trained him to be a better dog. Some dog trainers only have one way of training. Cat is not this way. She can assess your situation and your dog and work with you to come up with a plan that will meet your needs. She uses many styles of training and will find the one that will work for you and your pet. Cat has always been punctual with all of our appointments. Cat and all the staff at The Laundered Mutt & Training Center are kind, friendly and love animals. Thank you Cat for helping Diesel to be a better dog and for helping us to be better dog owners!!
great trainers for our puppy, although our dog is obviously smarter than us and Michelle and Philip seems to be training us more than our dog!
Great experience with DogWood K9!!! Ron has helped us train our German shepherd puppy so well! She walks without pulling, doesn't jump, doesn't bite, is well behaved around other dogs and can walk without a leash taking voice commands from us! Couldn't be happier!! Thank you Dogwood K9 training!!!
Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca
Obedient instructor, Rose, is a great trainer because she has helped my German Shepherd to be okay around other dogs and this is amazing otherwise my aggressive dog would harm other dogs. Instructors April and her Husband make my other German Shepherd cannot wait to attend agility class. I like Dog Services Unlimited so much that I signed up for Frisbee class and cannot wait to enroll in this as well as Work-And-Play classes.
My friend recommended Tommy to me when i got my German Shepard puppy. it was his best idea ever! Tommy was so kind and gentle eith the 4 And 2 legged members if his class. He asked about what food we were feeding, what our breeds were made for,etc and then began training the Owners rather than the dogs. After 6 weeks we saw improvement in bith the owners and dogs and after performing thr basic commands and a trick, we all received diplomas! I loved the place so much that i let Simon go to doggie day care to socialize with dogs of all sizes and breeds. 2 years later i got another shepard, Lancaster, and Tommy’s training helped me so much having 2 large boys but they are so sociable and friendly and i love them to death and they love their Mommy. Thanks ro Tommy’ classes we have a happy househokd !!
Cassandra helped me with my very hyper but loving German shepherd rescue. She was able to help calm him and teach him obedience. She was also able to teach that his is only allowed to go on the tile in my home and stay off the carpeted areas which helps keep my home cleaner because of his shedding and sometimes muddy paws. Definitely a good experience working with her.
Amazing! David was amazing with my dog. I had a dog who had several issues on top of not having any obedience. We tried other trainers before him and they couldn't help him. We finally found David and he did a wonderful job. He got our dog to stop lunging, barking, tearing up our things, helped us build a bond, and taught him obedience commands. I am very grateful for everything he's done.
Nothing could've been better!! We just had one task for Ted which was transitioning our (people and dog) aggressive German Shepherd into a friendly and tame dog. The results were astounding when we saw him after board training!!! It was like seeing a brand new dog approaching us!! Thanks so much Ted!! 10/10 would recommend
Absolutely the best choice. I have a 11 week old german shepherd who couldnt learn with 2 other trainers. Pure canine is the most helpful and is a real pleasure to work with. My dog is doing great and we can now share a mutually happy life. I did the 4 week course and in that short time we covered sit, down, place, leave it, drop it, repsect threshold, drop it and bark and quite on command, and create trainning. I will be signing up with her again for advanced training.
Kevin is a professional trainer: I was fortunate to have him answer my request for a puppy trainer: at the time two puppies...after one training session I realized that I had one puppy too many and found my aggressive puppy a kingdom of his own! giggle Kevin showed up on time each Saturday (6 lessons) and arrived prepared with a training agenda that he held to: My puppy is 4 months old, male and German Shepherd so it is extremely important because of the size dog he will become for him to have good training and manners! Kevin taught him: to sit/stay, to walk calmly on lead (not pulling on the leash), to go up and down a car loading ramp. I am (extremely grateful for this training because it is a relief to have it done in preparation for the future). Kevin and I walked 'Bear' down the street to socialize him with the neighbor dogs...he learned to walk by them without challenging them to a 'fence-run-bark'! We are still working on this. I was a bit apprehensive when beginning training and Kevin told me "when you are nervous it travels all the way down the leash in to the dog and the dog knows"... We graduated Basic obedience training last Saturday 12-17-16 and received a Merit Certificate for both of us and Bear received a Rawhide bone too. Kudos to Kevin for such good training and patience with both of us! I highly recommend him for your training needs...
Kate has been working with me and my over reactive German Shepherd Max. She has dramatically improved a behavioral issue with other dogs which at times I felt was hopeless. She has accomished huge results in a short period of time with kindness and patience. Her knowledge of dog behavior is very impressive and she is a pleasure to work with. Max loves her! She is a true professional and really cares about you and your dog. I have no doubt Max would not have made the progress he has if it weren't for Kate!
I met Richard Calkins through Robert Weatherwax, the owner of the famous Lassie, whom Richard worked with for many years, besides on many other Hit Movies and commercials where he trained animals to perform! That was a lucky day for me as Richard has since then trained and given me peace and so much joy for 3 generations of amazing German Shepherds in my life!!! Amazing because of his Magic Touch!!! He knows the dogs inside out and shows you what LOVE's got to do with it! It's all "positive reinforcement" training. All our dogs just love Richard, our Rocky would sit in the window waiting for an hour when I said Richard is coming! He is the best dog trainer you can ever have!!! He'll train you and your dog and prepares you for a happy future and life with your fury Pal!!! I owe everything I know today about dogs to Richard Calkins and I know a lot today! As a matter off fact my "Dantino" today, I train mostly myself with Richard doing just some touch ups and start ups! I very highly recommend Richard Calkins!!!
We hired Dixie for our 4 year old shepherd for her anxiety issues. We had a very bad experience with another "dog trainer" so we were apprehensive about any dog trainers. Dixie was referred to us & we are so glad we called! She is wonderful! Patient, calm & a wealth of information! In 2 weeks with her help & advice we are seeing improvements with our dog! I highly recommend Dixie.
My German Shepherd was out of control before i went to offleash k9. These trainers really bring the best out of your dog. I now have full control and am able to enjoy a better quality of life with my pup.
